1. I came to the conclusion sometime ago, that Joe Biden is President Obama’s Achilles heel. I am positive Obama regrets the day he chose Biden to run as his running mate for Vice-President. Biden’s problem is that he opens his mouth before thinking of the consequences of what he says. The scare tactics he made today about the Swine Flu, proves the man is an idiot. I’ve been trying to find the video, but have been unsuccessful, but this is what he said:

Asked on NBC's "Today" show what he would tell members of his family if they asked him whether they should get on a commercial airliner to Mexico in the next week, Biden said:

"I would tell members of my family -- and I have -- I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now."

He said the problem is that "when one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft."

"I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway. So from my perspective, what it relates to is mitigation," he said.


Have any thoughts on what he said?

2. I called my vet yesterday, because I just couldn’t understand why he charged me the outrageous price of $339.80. I told him that the dog wasn’t mine, but my brother’s who live in California. I went on to tell him that my brother had lost his job, and home due to the economy, and that I was just taking care of Jerry because the apartment he now has, won’t allow dogs, unless he leaves an extra $400.00 deposited. I told him that I suspected that he had charged me the astronomical bill because he felt that if I could afford such an expensive dog, then I could afford a BIG bill from him, which was not the case at all. I continued to tell him that he had a picture of Jesus Christ in his waiting room, and that I felt he should take it down, since he wasn’t being a very good Christian, nor was he showing any compassion for sick animals.

He told me that he would give me back $150.00 for the bill, and that when I’d take him back next week on Tuesday, with the poop specimen, he wouldn’t charge me. That made me happy.

Jerry is doing a little bit better. The tests showed everything is perfect, except he has a very severe stomach infection, and the pills he gave me should kill the infection.

Any thoughts on Foxx?

And now it begins.

You know, I wish I could find the post where, in the comments section, you worshipped at Joe Biden's feet. You posted a picture, "I LOVE HIS SMILE," and thought he could do no wrong. I'd still be searching, except that reading through your deranged rantings over the course of the 2008 campaigns was enough to rekindle a lot of hostility.

But now you're starting to see that all is not sunshine and kittens and lollipops in the land of Obama. "The scare tactics [Biden] made today about the Swine Flu, proves the man is an idiot." Well, yes, a number of us tried to tell you this last year.

I give it another year before you see your mistake.

FLY Flu
Well, I do have in my user info page that I'm very inconsistant.

I still love Biden's smile, but I have come to notice that he isn't very tactful, unlike President Obama who is who uses diplomacy to a T, and who is the coolest, calmest, most intelligent man I've ever encountered (TV). I love him more than ever! Obama has been trying to calm American's on this influenza thing, and Biden opens his mouth for a couple of seconds, and he terrifies most people. The man should not talk anymore - PERIOD.

I don't want to call it Swine Flu anymore, because there are some countries who are killing all the little pigs when they have nothing to do with it!! I'm going to start calling it the FLY Flu.

Re: FLY Flu
Unbelievable! Pigs are just as smart as dogs, if not even smarter, so they know when they're going to be killed. This breaks my heart as you cannot imagine!

He said it. The rest of us are just thinking it. Sure, there's nothing to fear but fear itself, and the actual threat of catching it on a plane is quite small and this flu really doesn't seem much worse than any other flu. I work in a hospital and will fly on a plane in two weeks. I'll be there and I'll dismiss my fears, but I'll still have them. The difference is that I don't have people following me around all the time asking me random questions and recoding the answers. Theoretically, the president and vice-president should think before they talk but considering pretty much everything they say gets recorded, often by the press, it's not surprising that some of it makes the news.

I'm sure random statements I've said would come across wrong if I was vice president.

Also, as with any quote that makes such news, I want to hear the whole story as any news worthy person is often mis-quoted or slectively quoted as the full, well explained conversation isn't of interest to the public nor those that want to make news. Many of the gaffes politicians have made have been only because the press only prints the 3 second sound bite rather than the entire conversation.

Hasn't there been only one death in this country? Unlike Mexico, this country is constantly working on ways to keep us alive, should we contract the flu.

I feel the reason so many in Mexico have died is because their government is doing very little to attend to those who got sick. Many could have died from something else, too.

I honestly do love Biden, but I feel he should really watch what he says. The last thing we want is for people losing control and doing God knows what.

What he said is factually correct. Contagions spread easily through confined spaces. But whether it was wise for the information to come from him or from an advisory in the news... It may not have been politically the right thing to say.

Yes it is, but we still have to travel. When asked the question, he should have said he'd have to give it more thought before he could answer the question posed to him. What he said only alarms people more.

Meh..Biden is notorious for foot in mouth disease. hardly an achilles heel. That would imply that Obama could be taken down by his veep's comments. That's extremely unlikely short of Joe mowing down the Senate with an assault rifle or making fart jokes at funerals.

Besides Specter's defection to the Democratic party takes center stage and overshadows whatever Joe says. Also Souter's announced retirement is the biggest news before the weekend "dump"

That's true. Obama is invincible!

or making fart jokes at funerals.

Lord! That was so FUN-EEE!!

Yesterday was the first time I heard the name Specter. Why all the hoopa loop over this man?

Biden is Obama's insurance policy. No one is going to want to get rid of Obama as long as Biden is next up. Crap, I'd throw myself in front of a bullet to prevent Biden coming to power.

I'm starting to feel sorry for Biden, because he's doing way too often what I do, and that's putting my foot in my mouth. At least my blunders aren't publicized before the entire world as his are. :o)

I had never heard of her until she opened her mouth. I feel so sorry for Shepard's mom for having to sit there and listen to the lies the awful, heartless woman said about her son.

just my thoughts
I am so very happy that Jerry is doing better! As for FOXX she is just one more incompetent asshole that should have never gone to Congress, she just does not get it.

The Shepard murder was based on bigotry, and hatred but my question is WHY do we need a special level of crime called HATE CRIMES? If someone kills another surely they dont love them!

WHY should someone who perpetuated a black on white crime or white on black crime or whatever combination get a more severe penalty than if they did a white on white, black on black, gay on gay crime?

Murder is murder regardless who does it for whatever reason. I believe in the Old Testament, 'An eye for an eye' If you kill then you forfit your life. Maybe we can slowly clean out the gene pool.

and yes Biden has always been a fool, his mouth is just being publicised more as VP.


Go to www.gradegov.com and see the grades on not only FOXX but any senator or representative in Congress now Its a great site and YOU can voice your opinions as well.

Re: just my thoughts
The little fella is doing better and better with each coming day.

I believe Hate Crimes differ greatly from regular crimes. Regular crimes are committed for money in armed robberies in businesses, car jacking, or homes. They are committed for money, or posessions. Murders are committed because of family problems, or because of anger with a neighbor.

Hate crimes have nothing to do with these things, and are committed toward people the murderer doesn't even know. Hate crimes are committed because of color of skin, or because a person is gay. These people I speak of have done absolutely nothing to their murderer.

That disgusting face of a donkey ass repulses me. She spoke before she knew the facts, and now she's trying to blame ABC. I'm glad she said what she did, so we came become aware of her true hate fill thoughts. She said the horrible things she did about the Shepard guy while his mother was in the audience. Foxx should be ousted immediately for slander, and when I say slander. Shepard was not robbing anything, but was tricked by those two beasts into friendship.

Re: just my thoughts
I* still dont like the term Hate Crimes because once you have that it can be so easily abused. Its a slippery slope, that has already become a problem.

When there is any crime against a black or any other minority people are real quick to call it a hate crime, especially if the person doing it is white. but you never hear of black on black or hispanic on hispanic or gay on gay crimes as hate crimes. With the liberal media the way it is they are quick to use that phrase HATE CRIME because it sells papers and adds sensationalism to the report, wether it is a true hate crime or not, and once the media gets it the sheep cannot get it out of their minds.

Ok, on the hate crime thing. I used to wonder about why they were needed until a law professor here explained a few things that made sense. The idea of a hate crime is not geared towards the victim but to identify the motive of the crime.

A good example is if the KKK burned a cross on someone's yard in lots of states and in some cases it would simply be tried on the basis of what ythe physical evidence shows. Trespassing, vandalism, etc. Not something that is going to effectively deter someone who uses this to make a statement and to intimidate and terrorize the victims.

So you add motive (which should always still have to be proven) and you can also charge the person with a hate crime that goes to the intent and makes sense in terms of what they are sentenced for.

I get the point of the argument but this isn't so different from the way we prosecute organized crime these days. The way RICO predicates are established almost uses the same ideas for how we establish things are hate crimes. For me some of the failures have been in the zealous nature of the prosecution (federal prosecutors love their jobs A LOT). But for the most part on a case by case basis I think labelling hate crimes has been a lot more successful and fair than not.

Are you a law student?

Where at, and do you recommend the school?

No, I am just fortunate enough to work around alot of interesting and smart people. I like to pick their brains, in fact the Nobel Prize winner in Physics for 2003 Tony Liggett used to sometimes sit next to me on the bus home from work. I think the Law School here is only ranked 23rd in the country (University of Illinois)
If you are interested in law school I wish you luck in finding a good school.

And these people who commit hate crimes, and are caught and sentenced, still continue with their hate crimes in prison. They never stop. The ones who commit the most hate crimes in prisons are the Hispanics, who kill each other.
